HILTON, N.Y. (AP) — A historic lighthouse on Lake Ontario in western New York will be featured as a vacation getaway prize on the TV game show "The Price is Right."

Donald and Nandy Town operate the Braddock Point Lighthouse in Hilton as a luxury bed and breakfast inn. They expect the television exposure on the popular game show to keep them very busy next summer. The lighthouse, built in 1896, will be featured on the show on Jan. 15.

Officials with the Great Lakes Seaway Trail are also hoping for a boost in tourism from the game show appearance.

The Braddock Point Lighthouse is one of 30 historic and replica structures along the 518-mile-long Great Lakes Seaway Trail National Scenic Byway along the St. Lawrence River, Lake Ontario, Niagara River and Lake Erie.
